Voluntary Servitude

Amplify’d from

Etienne de
la Boétie (namesake for our conference this weekend) observed the
same thing in the 1500s, and he wrote about it in his Discourse
on Voluntary Servitude
. He points out that the governing
system rests and rises only on the consent of otherwise free people.
The slave-citizens voluntarily serve the state, and willingly consent
to the order, and the orders of, the state. Of course, part of the
reason we give our consent is that we fear being jailed, hung, shot,
beheaded, losing our property, our families, or our physical freedom
at the hand of an angry or disappointed state. In some ways, this
fear of rejection and isolation, is logical. We consciously or subconsciously
decide to trade our consent for continued life as we know it.
